Tim Bassett is a glass blower and artist. His work covers a wide range of art and design, from functional home decor to large sculptural installations.
He has been working with glass for over 20 years and has studied with some of Australia’s leading glassblowers. He has also undertaken intensive courses in specialised glass techniques and lighting design both in Australia and overseas.
His work is in private collections in Australia, Japan, New Zealand, USA and UK, as well as the collection of Dr Norris Ioannou, author of several books on contemporary glass and ceramics.
The Australian National Art Glass Collection acquired Tim’s work on 2007 and again in 2009 and has been short listed for the prestigious Ranamok Prize for Contemporary Glass. He has been the recipient of an Ian Potter Cultural Trust Grant.
